The McGoogan Library of Medicine would like to announce the opening of a space of reflection on February 1, 2017. The Reflection Room made possible by funding from the Department of Psychiatry, will be available to students, faculty, and staff to carry out quiet meditation or reflection. The room holds displays of art that will rotate periodically, soft lighting, and comfortable cushions and mats for meditation. A massage chair is also available in the room. Contemplative music selections are available for access via QR code on your mobile device. The Reflection Room is located on the 8th floor of the McGoogan Library of Medicine in room 8016A and is open to all during regular library hours. No reservations are required.
McGoogan Library additionally has a Wellness Corner on the northwest side of the 6th floor. Large-format relaxing images, a coloring station, and wellness-themed books on relaxation techniques, yoga, and managing stress are available. Relaxing song and music recommendations are also available in this area via QR code on your mobile device.
McGoogan Library of Medicine has 16 study rooms available to students, faculty and staff of UNMC and Nebraska Medicine. Reservation for study rooms can be made online. A UNMC or Nebraska Medicine email address is required. Please note that the first time you reserve a room, you must verify your email address through a link sent to that address. The email will come from Evanced Solutions.
Study rooms may be reserved for up to 4 hours at a time with 1 renewal (unless the room is reserved by another person or group). You may have two active reservations within a 24-hour period. Date and time of reservation must pass before you can make another reservation. Reservations may be made up to 2 weeks in advance.
Wi-fi is available in all of the rooms. Markers, erasers and white boards are available in each room. Additional markers and erasers are available at the AskUs Desk.
The study rooms are keyless; you are advised not to leave personal items unattended anywhere in the library. Rooms are not soundproof and are located on a quiet floor.
The McGoogan Library of Medicine has a new room available for use by faculty, staff and students. The new Wilson Training Room (WH 8011) is available for meetings including videoconferences, training sessions, webinars and other use as needed. Technology includes a pc computer, network connection, large screen projection, two 50” small-group monitors enabled with Mersive Solstice POD Unlimited which allows user connectivity from any personal device and interaction with the large screen projection, microphone system, and Echo 360 Pro for recording of presentations. The Wilson Training Room can accommodate up to 33 occupants (this includes the speaker) and has a flexible seating arrangement. To reserve the Wilson Training Room, contact Danielle Drummond by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 402-559-6839. Availability can be seen on the Outlook calendar entitled “Wilson Training Room”.
Movers will be in the Library on Friday, June 3 to remove metal shelves in the northwest corner of the 6th floor. This will be very noisy work. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
On March 28, 2016, students, staff and faculty of UNMC and Nebraska Medicine can reserve study rooms just by using their official email address and a smartphone or computer. Simply go to our reservation system (to be added to the library’s home page) or scan the QR Code posted next to each room’s door, and reserve the study room for one to four hours on whatever day you choose. Size and room features are highlighted in the system to help you choose a room. Once this system is live, there will no longer be the need to check out study room keys. Simply go to the room for the duration of your reservation.
During the week of March 21st there will be renovation on the rooms as the library gets ready for the new system. We regret any inconvenience.
